Absolutely silly, and definitely fun! And it's great to see such fine actors in the movie, taking it all so seriously, probably because they had no idea at all what the "big bird" would look like in the finished film. BAWWK BAWWK!!!

Oh, for the good old days when the movies were cheap and fun, instead of insanely expensive and boring as hell (i.e., "IRON MAN 326486903926346") as is the case today!

You would think the Zucker brother (Airplane) saw it and used the same formula, huh?

Leslie Nielsen said that the key to that type of twisted humor (AIRPLANE, NAKED GUN, etc.) was to "play it straight-faced but outrageous." He sure was superb at it!

I must agree. I have the "Sledge Hammer!" TV series, and it was done the same way. (What other detective showers with his gun?) Even better -- the DVD version dumped the laugh track. Without those annoying cues, the black comedy is even funnier.

The star of Sledge Hammer, David Rasche, is a super nice guy. I need to order the series on DVD before it's gone.

EDIT #1: Just found the complete series on Amazon for under $20! :)

EDIT #2: I found it for FREE on Hulu.com, all 40 episodes (!?), but it has the laugh-track. Hmm. Decisions, decisions.

I'd buy the Amazon set. There are some cool extras in the sets, and -- seriously -- the deletion of the laugh track makes a world of difference.

Trust me. I know what I'm doing.
